Carbon Footprint of Everything!

11949862211972030785bananas nicu buculei 01.svg.hiClimate Change is one of those things that it’s just hard to get a handle on sometimes; luckily there’s some top people out there doing the science to bring home the reality of what emitting carbon boils down to in everyday life.

One of these people is Mike Berners Lee, his book ‘How Bad are Bananas? The Carbon Footprint of Everything’ does exactly what it says on the tin in a fun, engaging way. This year Small World Consulting have released a new mobile app of the same name on which users can find and compare the carbon footprints of different everyday  items, activities, life events and foods.  Check out the app in the App Store and on Google Play for Android users, it’s free and well worth having a play with!

Mike’s latest book ‘The Burning Question’ tackles the issues surrounding man’s reliance on fossil fuels and the consequences of this on climate change. Mike is giving what promises to be an interesting presentation on the book at Lake District National Park HQ, Murley Moss, Kendal on 17th July organised by South Lakeland Action on Climate Change.
